Plot a Walter Lieth climate diagram


signature(X = "dataclim")

This produces a Walter Lieth climate diagram from annual cycles of temperature and precipitation.

signature(X = "matrix")

As above, but for a matrix input. This must be a 4x12 matrix, with first row: monthly precipitation (mm), second row: monthly average maximum daily temperature (degC), third row: monthly average minimum daily temperature (degC), forth row: monthly absolute minimum daily temperature. NAs are not allowed.


The code is based on code from the former CRAN package climatol by Jose A. Guijarro <>.
